I have recently released my latest book A Dangerous Liaison – Phoenix Rising, which is now available at online retailers such as Smashwords, Amazon, KOBO, NOOK, IBook, and Lulu. With that comes the task of trying to promote and market, all which can feel quite overwhelming and discouraging. I still want to go back and go over the first book in the series too, just because I want to make sure it looks right.
Knowing I’m not alone in feeling the weight of the task ahead doesn’t take away the anxiety and the many insecurities associated with putting one’s work out there, but I count myself fortunate to have friends who’ll put me in my place if they feel I’m slacking in my duties as an author, and giving me a nudge when they see I need it.
The road to success is often a shared venture and I’m happy to share mine with those who support me, even when my fears are most stubborn. So thank you to my most supportive friends for giving me a kick in the butt when I need it. In this holiday season I wish everyone happy holidays and a joyous new year.
